Fines levied against those involved with Russian-controlled plane grounded in Yellowknife

Transport Canada says it has laid thousands of dollars worth of fines against those involved with a charter flight carrying two Russian civilians that was grounded in Yellowknife Tuesday.

News of the flight broke Wednesday when the N.W.T.'s infrastructure minister, Diane Archie, told the Legislative Assembly the passengers had been en route to Resolute, Nunavut, as part of an Arctic expedition in a "large all-terrain utility vehicle."

On Friday, Transport Canada confirmed it has laid $3,000 fines against the Russian passenger who had chartered the aircraft and each of the two pilots of the flight. The aircraft operator, Dunard Engineering Ltd., has been fined $15,000.


Sau Sau Liu, a senior communications advisor with Transport Canada, said in an email that the federal agency investigated the flight. Though the aircraft is not Russian-owned or registered, Transport Canada found it broke new airspace restrictions that were announced Feb. 27 in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Those restrictions closed Canada's airspace to any Russian-owned, operated or chartered aircraft.

1. Wow. They're not playing with these sanctions. Actually I wonder if that was really this person's

real mission. Not a CT, but for officials to know there is one person on a private chartered plane seems unusual.
